Resources for Ridgewood Families During the Coronavirus Quarantine

The Newcomers Board is so grateful to our town’s incredible medical professionals, first responders, grocery store and pharmacy employees, teachers and many others who are working tirelessly to help our community.

As the rest of us do our part in fighting the Coronavirus by staying home, we recognize how difficult it is for our town’s small businesses to stay afloat. We are also personally familiar by now with the challenge for families to keep their sanity!

We have compiled lists of some local resources to help keep our local businesses going, while helping us all stay well-fed and busy!
